The first time my boss asked me to talk about the upcoming season of “The Office” I was stumped.
The show is in production, and we are in the middle of an election season.
I was on vacation and the call had to happen quickly.

Even when I did, it was never the same feeling.
The more I tried to get my bosses to understand how difficult this was, the more it seemed like I was being punished.
I could never tell them how bad this was for the team because I’m not on the team.
The worst part was that I didn’t know how to ask. I didn
